Nani

 

 

Nani’s music has distant leanings to Flamenco, North African music and Sephardic traditional song, with timeless melodies and fluid improvisation, but more importantly, she is the only known artist to revitalise the ancient Ladino language of her grandmother’s Morocco, bringing it into the spotlight and up-to-date with material resonant with our own times. Her voice alone is mesmerising – pure and simple, powerful and precise, and imbued with the traditions and the emotional journey of the migrant people who first took their culture across the globe, following the Jewish expulsion from Spain in the 15th century. With her trio, the sound world of fiery Spanish guitar and vibrant percussion is infused with the rhythm of the market place, the melodies of joy and heartbreak, and the stories of a people who left behind their homeland
